Description: We own quite old Malm chest of drawers and I was still not able to find a suitable place for it in our new house. At the end I decided to place it in children’s room but with it’s original ‘clothing’ seemed to be a bit boring. So space for pimping up.
After gentle sanding, I painted it with paint roller in 3 layers and after drying I started with applying dots. I prepared a pattern to help me to apply dots more or less regularly. After I managed to stick 520 dots, I painted it with a protective coat of transparent lacquer.
